Passing in a string makes this trickier, as I guess you've already
realized. What you're doing in
is trying to call a string (directory_context) like an ObjectManager.
Not going to work. Python lets you get away with a lot, but not that much.
As suggested previously, you can turn the string into an object by
restrictedTraverse(). In similar situations, involving non-traversable
attributes, you might use Python's getattr() built-in.
